It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Well, this year has flown by! Hope you are all ready for the holidays. We are looking forward to Christmas with daughter and her family, but sadly missing son and his family. Having them on two different coasts makes things hard sometimes.  We will fly to the other coast next month for a grandson's 4th birthday!

Thought I'd just share a few things that I've never gotten posted today.

This fun card was made at a Stampin' Up Card and Cuppa that I attend every 2nd and 4th Tuesday. 
Sally McDonald heads this up, and we all have such a great time.  Here is the outside of this card:

And here is the inside:

Sally's daughter, Kim, came all the way from Hawaii to inspire us with this one!

Here is one of the styles of Christmas card I made. The stamps are Penny Black. The image was colored with Copic markers, and some 'stars' added with stickles. The sky was sponged using a make up brush.

I think all in all, I made 6 different styles this year. Here are the two boxes, ready to go. We either mailed or delivered 168 hand made cards. Whew....!

That's it for today!

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
